Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival 2015

A couple weeks ago my friend Lindsay and I went to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.  I love Sheep & Wool and look forward to it every year!  There's so much to see it's hard to fit it all into one day.

There are lots of sheep!






This is Steve, a Natural Colored ram.  Sweet guy!

















And of course there is wool.  I bought a few things...but I wanted to buy a LOT more than a few things.  This is some Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) top, ready for spinning.
















And some BFL locks, undyed.
















And BFL dyed locks. (I think I need a few BFL ewes now)

















The grayish wool is Masham (I had never heard of it before), and the blueish is Merino.
















I got some assorted roving colors for adding to my fiber stash.
















There was yarn everywhere.  I loved the walls of yarn from this vendor.
















LOTS of people.
















Lots of good food...I always get a gyro.
















There was a vendor there with amazing needle felted animals!

















































Lindsay and me
















I got a chance to meet an online friend from a fiber forum.  She lives in PA and traveled down to the festival.  She was so nice, and she came down with a group of really nice women.
















I already can't wait until next year's festival!
